Hi I'm Taylon Ashby

I have grown up in Utah. I'm a Mormon and am preparing to serve a mission in Rancagua, Chile.

About Me

I have lived in Utah my entire life. I graduated high school in spring of 2013 with my Associates Degree. I am currently preparing to serve a LDS mission in Chile and plan on attending college when I return. I am planning on majoring in Biology mainly Virology. I have played many instruments one mainly being Clarinet. I have also been involved in soccer for years. First I was a soccer player but for the last 4 years I have been a soccer referee.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church but as I have grown up I have had to make my own decisions and decide to stay in the church but making this decision was not a problem for me because I know the church is true. I realized this when I got thinking about the companionship I have always had. The companionship I have is my Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. It is such an amazing feeling to have them constantly around me. I know whenever I am having a hard time I can simply pray to them and ask for there companionship but when I do this I always get an answer of I am already here carrying you across your trials. This companionship is something that I know I would not be able to make it in this world without their constant companionship.

How I live my faith

In my ward I have held many callings. For example I have been Secretary and President for the age group 12-13, Secretary, First Counselor, and President for the 14-15 age group, and Secretary for the 16-17 age group. I actively participate in planning and carrying out youth activities and in Church Welfare Assignments. I have had the opportunity to clean temple grounds, volunteer at my local D.I., help at Welfare Square's canning department, in the churches pasta and, corn factory and also their local farms.
